Summit Middle School staff opens time capsule

November 1, 2018

Joshua St. John inherited important information when he joined Summit Middle School nearly a decade ago: a time capsule hidden under a trophy case near the entrance was to be opened Nov. 1, 2018.

Plans for the unveiling snowballed, resulting in an hour-long, live-streamed ceremony Thursday that involved district administration and Summit staff, students and former teachers from the school’s start in 1993.

“It’s really special for a school to come together and recognize its history, to celebrate its present and to make plans to connect in that same way with the future,” St. John said.
